WB Surf Camp offers free surf lessons to children with Autism.

WB Surf Camp is excited to announce that it will be donating 50 hours of private surf instruction this summer to kids and teens with autism. Surfers Healing, founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz, improves the lives of children with autism through surfing. John Pike has carried their efforts to Wrightsville Beach; through his annual Surf Camp, John does an amazing job of raising awareness and changing lives on the local level. In an effort to help continue their joint mission, we will be providing this expanded opportunity to help our community all summer long.

This initiative will be offered completely free of charge and on a first come first serve basis. Instruction will be facilitated by two of our certified instructors per child to ensure a positive and safe experience. The scheduling of lessons will be flexible to help accommodate busy family schedules and favorable wave conditions. Please help spread the word to anyone you may know that might benefit from this program. For more information on how to reserve a spot contact Rick Civelli via email at: Rick@wbsurfcamp.com or feel free to call our office at 910.256.7873.

Any business that would like to be a part of this program by sponsoring children, or anyone interested in water safety volunteer opportunities can also contact Rick for more details.

Giving Back, one wave at a time!
